Regarding the problem of the sun: You are all aware that the solar system as a whole is not fixed in space? If I remember correctly, it revolves around the galactic core and the galaxy is moving somewhere also.
Just because you can work it out with mass doesn't mean you can work it out with every ability to determine reality.
The principle of relativity holds, as far as I know, for gravity and EM, also for space and time. Without breaking out the books I'm not sure about strong and weak nuclear forces. But gravity and EM is responsible for A LOT of our daily lives. So yeah. It should work out with everything else.

To avoid the one pitfall that ruins science and turns it into religion.
Certainty is the bane of the scientific method. Belief in Truth (capital T) or ultimates of some kind -- that's faith-thinking, not science-thinking. Skepticism and doubt are the scientist's most important lenses. We can't give those up without ceasing to be scientists.
Thanks for that. I certainly see that I didn't communicate clearly on that, but I tried to bring up the same point earlier.
